    I had a bike just like this one! My mother used to enter contests, lots of contests. She won an orange, 24-inch Schwinn Varsity probably about 1976.

    On one of my first rides I was going full blast down a new sidewalk and didn’t know there was a 6-inch cut in it to let water through. I hit the gap and BOOM! the tire blew, and I flipped!

    I can’t remember what happened to that bike.

    So, do these forks every scare anyone else?

      No way! Those babies are solid steel and weigh about 5lbs. by themselves! What’s to be scared of?
